This gateway provides a striking entrance into the Old Town. While the surrounding buildings of today add to the charm of the precinct, Michael’s Gate would have been a more stunning entrance in years gone by. The Gate is home to the compass with bearings...More

Good little area, with plenty of atmosphere. Though the area (eyes closed) does sound like a Philadelphia retirement village, if you didn’t know otherwise.

We always used this as our focal point to navigate the city. There are walls to explore with historical pictures and facts throughout the ages. It's pretty busy, there is s great little bar right beside it to relax and take it all in.
